    I worked at Maersk Drilling full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. Great sense of accomplishment and the ability to make a difference right where you are. Enjoyed being a part of management team of the rig

    Cons

    HR basically ushered me out the door after posting to social media I was moving to another town. It was pretty unprofessional. Told me I resigned via social media? My resignation came with a severance so, wasn't much of a resignation rather than a "we know we are wrong" payment.

    I have been working at Maersk Drilling

    Pros

    Company gives all that is promised. Considering the Oil downturn, company has been ethical in adjusting wages and keeping benefits as constant as possible.

    Cons

    Shipboard management lacks good structure in some departments. Making the 80/20 rule very apparent. 80% of the work is done by 20% of the people

    Pros

    The company believes in thier core values, dedication to thier customers and employees. Pay and benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Would have to say the selection of choosing who's laid off and stays was biased, also if hired remember to stay humble.

    I worked at Maersk Drilling

    Pros

    - friendly environment - excellent working conditions ( full canteen breakfast and lunch, workplace counseling, courses, gym, etc.) - lots of opportunities to learn on the job

    I worked at Maersk Drilling full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A financially strong company, with their U.S. branch based in Houston with main headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark. Mostly good people, personable and engaged with everyone on their offshore rigs. Like every other company they were forced to adapt to the downturn in oil recently with expiring contracts and the like. Unfortunately this meant layoffs for a good number of folks, although some received transfers to other rigs. While they went far beyond in their efforts to preserve jobs, ultimately they were forced to act and even then provided severance and benefits to ease the transition for those laid off. The office also was forced to make tough cuts, sad times.

    Cons

    The only real negative was in my case personally. 5 years of good to great evaluations all went down the tubes quick, the moment I expressed I had a problem with management. I essentially placed a target on my own back, from having a problem to being a problem and that's a problem. It sends the wrong message to everyone off shore.
